But while the ingredients are the same, Ballard and Palahniuk bake at completely different temperatures. Unlike his British counterpart, who tends to cast his American protagonists in a chilly light, holding them close enough to dissect but far enough away to eliminate any possibility of kinship, Palahniuk isn't happy unless he's first-person front and center, completely entangled in the whole sordid mess. An intensely psychological novel that never runs the risk of becoming clinical, Fight Club is about both the dangers of loyalty and the dreaded weight of leadership, the desire to band together and the compulsion to head for the hills. In short, it's about the pride and horror of being an American, rendered in lethally swift prose. Fight Club's protagonist might occasionally become foggy about who he truly is (you'll see what I mean), but one thing is for certain: you're not likely to forget the book's author. Never mind Ballardesque. Palahniukian here we come! --Bob Michaels --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
This is a fabulous book written in a very unique style.
After Invisible Monsters, it seems like Palahniuk is just retreading the same ideas and style of prose with new characters and story.
I love the movies, don't get me wrong, but there is so much more you can get out of a good book, and Chuck is like that.

Fight Club changed my life. I saw the movie about twelve times and each time discovered something new, so, I was compelled to read the book. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Jay Mitchell
Just wish I read it before I saw the movie. I like the movie more. But still, it's a great book, expertly written by the great Chuck Palahniuk!Published 7 days ago by Mr. One-Two
